Description

Experience one of the most beautiful and picturesque ancient Mayan cities! This half day tour is perfect for a quick outing. Tulum, a beautiful archaeological site, is located on a cliff by the shore of one of the most beautiful scenic in the world. Find out why this is the most visited archaeological site in Mexico by exploring the detailed architecture of one of the most important commercial ports in Mesoamerica. Your guide will provide you with historical notes and details about this stunning city while you take pictures, swim off the coast of the stunning beach, or tinker with intricate Maya handicrafts. Then... a trip to the Gran Cenote! Cenotes (natural sinkholes) were considered entrances to the underworld by the Mayans, but today people flock to their magnificent crystal clear turquoise waters to relax and take a refreshing swim. Some people even opt for a dive from the platforms at the roof of the cenote! Here, you can go snorkeling and view the entrances into underwater caves and swim past the fish that live in this beautiful oasis.

Gudelio and Team

I was born and raised in Monterrey, México. I've been in love with my country, its traditions, and its pre­hispanic cultures since I was a kid. When I first learned about the ancient cultures of Mexico, I was fascinated and sought out any archaeology, Maya, or Aztec book I could get my hands on. I also love nature so much that, in my youth, I would take long hikes in the mountains that surround my hometown, sometimes camping out for a whole week. There’s nothing I love more than a bonfire under a sky full of stars. Deciding to experience other cultures, I moved to California for 4 years and was immersed in the diversity of American culture. I loved getting to meet people from all over the world. It was an experience that widened my view of the world and showed me the differences in people’s histories and languages. I then traveled around the U.S., Cuba, Belize, Spain, and Honduras.

When I finally returned to Mexico, I moved to the Yucatan peninsula because I had always dreamed of its beaches and wanted to be closer to Mayan culture. Moving to Cancun was a dream come true. Its coast is beautiful, its jungle lush, and its Mayan heritage strong. After that, I fell in love with Playa del Carmen and decided to move here after a few years because of its small town atmosphere and the diversity of the people that pass through. I traveled around a lot of Mexico, but still have a lot to explore and learn. I've called the Yucatan Peninsula my home since 2008 and wouldn't trade it for anything.
